Situated on the ground floor of Wilshire Courtyard office building at 5700 Wilshire Blvd., the store occupies 2,200 square feet.
During the open house ribbon-cutting event and celebration, customers were invited to sample beverages and join in giveaways.
“As a brand and company, we are so proud to be opening our 1,000th location globally right here in our company’s birthplace, The City of Los Angeles,” said Jeff Schroeder, senior vice president of operations.
The Coffee Bean corporate offices relocated to the Wilshire Courtyard office building at the beginning of June 2015. The redesigned office space will hold support center employees, and the offices will bookend this new flagship location.
